Thank you for your message about my Great Uncle Guy. I was hesitant to post the memorial because I was not sure of his burial location. Relying on my Mother's 70 year old memory is not the best thing to do. I will give the cemetery a call and see what information they have.

My 90 year old mother had surgery a few days ago and my hands are full. I'll get back with you over my Harris family when I can.

Laura Gilliland
The person buried in Oak Ridge is named Laura Gilliland and she had no memorial before I added one. There was no malintent...I just didn't see an existing memorial, and I still don't. If I had seen one, I would have asked you to transfer it to me, as Laura was my great aunt, and the legend of her death weighs heavily on the family to this day. Having now seen what you entered, I would not have asked simply because the information is not correct. No one looking for Laura's memorial would ever find yours. I'm accustomed to dealing with very gracious people on this web site. However it's clear that you perceive my involvement as some sort of threat, and not as the chance to get some relief from your workload or to present the best possible memorials for people who deserve our very best.

It is unethical to remove the photos that other people post. It is also unethical to copy information from another person's written work without giving them credit. If you'd like to take this to mediation, I'm all for it, as I do not know how to resolve this. Until my photos were removed, my entry was more correct and complete. It has extensive links that your entry does not. Ditto Joseph Harris, whose existing memorial I simply did not see. After ten years of researching this family, I have information that you don't, and I like to get credit for my work (even as "Anonymous"). As a family member, it is painful to see my loved ones being short-changed by a stranger.

BjJ Thanks for the photos and date corrections for my grandparents, Abe Cable & Mayme Cable Mottar. Thanks for all the good work you do. You are a treasure.

RE: Noah Baxter 64677329
I am thrilled to have it. Noah was my husband's great-grandmother's (Susan Baxter Beam) oldest brother. I decided this morning, since only two of them are connected, to start trying to add the others. The Find A Grave edit to their parents came through, which was great, but the obituary is even better. Thanks a lot.

RE: George Allen Thompson b/d
Thanks for being so kind about my erroneous attempt at a correction. I often get dates confused because I grew up with the European convention of days.months.year of birth.

Then I worked for the UN and they insisted on Year.Month.Date. It it the conflicting uses of forward slashes that makes it even harder.

RE: James C. Hall
BjJ: Yes, THANK YOU!. I am sorry I didn't get back to you. I become so engrossed in the story and trying to convert it to Word and organize it, so I can send print copies to my sisters.

I really appreciate your finding and sending the articles to me. You exceeded my expectations.

Again, I apologize for not being more timely in thanking you.

James C. Hall
BjJ, I believe we have corresponded in the past about my great grandfather, James C. Hall, Find A Grave Memorial #22205468.

The Memorial is taken from an obituary written at the time of his death. I am trying to gather additional information about James. Do you happen to know what news paper published his obituary?

Thank you
Oliver Gerland

Wiessing Graves
I believe all of the Wiessing graves you have listed are from my family. 100% of those buried in Calvary Cemetery, Springfield, IL are of my family. Would like to add additional information on these people if you will allow. Please let me know how.

RE: Ellen/Helen Fay
That sounds good to me. We had a hard time tracking her down because of the name. They referred to her as Nettie a lot. So glad I got this family together. Thank you for your help. I did not know about Find A Grave wanting us to keep what the stone says. I will remember that from now on. Thank you for the heads up! Elaine
